Emoni Bates lists Michigan among six finalists

Memphis transfer Emoni Bates announced his six finalists today: Michigan, Seton Hall, Arkansas, Eastern Michigan, DePaul, and Louisville.

“I’ve been knowing Juwan since I was in the eighth or ninth grade,” Bates told Joe Tipton. “That’s when I really met him. He’s always been a cool person. He’s cool with some of my family on my dad’s side. I’ve been knowing of him since he won the championship in Miami. Just watching him play at Michigan, go on to the NBA, it was special.”

Bates has no timetable for a decision, told On3 that he’s “going to school, for sure” and plans to take visits.

Bates averaged 9.7 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game as a freshman at Memphis after reclassifying and skipping his senior season. More on Bates, including extended highlights of him in action as a freshman after the jump.
